What should my child wear to Gym?

  • Loose comfortable clothing: Boys are best in shorts and t-shirt, whilst girls like bike shorts, crop tops, singlet tops and T-shirts. Girls may also like to wear leotards, which are great.
  • Please ensure that all children's hair is tied back, and kept off their face with clips or elastics. Plastic or metal headbands are to be avoided as they can be uncomfortable and cause scalp injuries.
  • Children should not wear any jewellery to gymnastics, including watches.
